Dr Richard Mead: Living in hte Broad Sushine of Life Online Lecture

13th October, 2020

Richard Mead (1673-1754) was one of the foremost physicians of his age, whose eminent patients included Robert Walpole, Alexander Pope and Queen Anne on her deathbed. Known for his work on poisons and public health, he advised the government on preventative measures to stop the spread of plague from France. In his day, however, he was as much known for his sumptuous collection – which rivalled that of Sir Hans Sloane - and for his philanthropy and support of the arts.
